Re: Tools: First strip build - first question

I purchased the small "digital bevel box" that I realized what I was missing all these years. This small beauty gives you true 90* from saw table to blade, drill press table to drill bit. band saw table to blade and many many more uses that we take for granted. And the beauty of it all IT'S CHEAP!

I agree with Nick - the digital 'box' is handy, though mine wasn't cheap when I bought it some years ago. It's excellent for setting bevel cuts on the table saw, and then checking the blade for square when the bevel cuts are finished.

To square the drill press table, a handy and free method is to bend a (foot-long ?) piece of wire clothes hanger into a 'Z' shape.
Chuck one end in the drill chuck, and rotate the chuck by hand. When the other end of the 'Z' is touching the table all round, it's square.
